Des Moines homeowner, police shoot armed suspects after report of robbery

Detectives are investigating a police shooting that left at least one person injured Sunday night in Des Moines. 

Around 8:30 p.m., officers responded to a report of suspicious circumstances in the 24000 block of 16th Avenue South. 

Police said a woman reported that her home was being robbed. 

When officers arrived, they encountered an armed suspect and officers opened fire. 

The armed suspect that confronted the officers was taken to Harborview Medical Center and is expected to survive his injuries.

According to investigators, a second suspect was also involved in a shooting with the homeowner. 

Police said two Des Moines Police Department officers were involved in the shooting.

The Valley Independent Investigative team (VIIT) is serving as the independent investigative team for this OIS. VIIT is a multi-agency team made up of investigators from seven south King County Police Departments (Auburn, Des Moines, Federal Way, Kent, Renton, Port of Seattle, and Tukwila). The Des Moines Police Department is exempt from this investigation since officers with the agency were involved.
